The Lebanon City Council will start its week off with a public hearing and meeting on Tuesday.
The public hearing will be held at 5:55 p.m. at the Lebanon Town Meeting Hall to discuss the amendment of a zoning ordinance that removes the current text requiring sidewalks and replaces it with text requiring a “pedestrian circulation plan.”
A pedestrian circulation plan should show how pedestrians get from main buildings to the parking lot, any required through sidewalks, the dumpster pad and other buildings. It is meant to show a comfortable and pleasant way for pedestrians to travel through a property.
The city council will meet immediately following the public hearing at 6 p.m.
During the meeting Mayor Philip Craighead will present the Legends of Lebanon Award to Fakes & Hooker Lumber Co.
The council will then vote on a final reading to approve the aforementioned pedestrian circulation plan.
The council will also vote on a first reading to amend the 2013-14 budget to include a one-step employee pay increase.
New items on the agenda include:
• first reading to amend the future land use plan to match the new urban growth boundary.
• resolution to hire a part-time animal control officer for the Police Department.
• resolution to hire a part-time reserve officer for the Police Department.

• resolution to reclassify four dispatcher positions at the Police Department.
• first reading to approve buying Fisher Brand regulators, valves and reliefs on an as-needed basis for the Gas Department.
